Degree and diploma etc.
Successful candidates who complete all the study requirements for this program receive their Master of Science degree in Cloud Computing and Management from Global College Malta.
While there is a great future potential, there is expected to be a huge gap between supply and demand to meet the needs of the cloud technologies market. This presents an unprecedented opportunity for the graduates of this course.
More and more corporations evaluate their current IT topography and move more into a SAAS (Software As A Service) based model, which is driven by the Cloud platform and technology. This not only ensures cost savings, but removes redundant hardware. This means that organisations need to restructure their internal IT needs and deployment strategy, which requires cloud infrastructure specialists. There is thus a great demand for professionals who will be able to understand and implement various ERP applications, as well as manage data and various security aspects around it.
